The side-arm slot is exclusively for right-handed hitters, so the difference in value is probably a platoon split issue. Backup sliders will not work in Colorado, so I think he should stay 3/4 for now.
Not just a platoon split issue. If you look only at sliders and two-seam fastballs from to RHBs, those from the lower slot do better than the normal slot. Even if you think the backup sliders wouldn’t work, the lower-slot two-seamers would be nice in Colorado where you want to keep things on the ground.

Maybe his 2nd arm slot is so successful BECAUSE he doesn’t throw it very often. Perhaps the variation turns him into a temporary reliever (i.e. a pitcher you don’t see very often) and therefore inflates his results.
If he increased his usage, he might decrease his per pitch effectiveness.
Just a theory….

Book of Ra, Dolphin Pearl, Sizzling Hot (le ultime due disponibili solo a StarGames finora …) e Lucky Lady’s Charme sono probabilmente le slot machines più emozionante che abbia mai giocato e so che molte persone sono alla ricerca per le slot machines originale Novomatic o almeno per altri simili, per lo più “Libro di slot Ra” che significa che gli slot con un simbolo di espansione selvaggia credo.
